Maurilia Meehan Short Story Workshop

Are you prepared to begin a great story, or take your story to the next level?

Ballarat Writers, in conjunction with Writers Victoria and the Grace Marion Wilson Trust, are please to announce our short story workshop with award-winning story teller, Maurilia Meehan. The workshop will be held on Saturday July 8th from 1–4 pm at MADE (the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka) in Ballarat.

We’ve just noticed that the portal for the Maurilia Meehan Short Story Workshop doesn’t seem to be working, but there are still some spots available! If you want to attend, please contact Irene at or on 53320092 before 11.00am on Saturday. Don’t miss out!

Words Out Loud — Storm the Barricades

rat reads18 july 2017Words Out Loud lights a revolutionary spark in the winter dark when it ‘storms the barricades’ at Babushka lounge in Ballarat on Thursday, July 20, 7–9pm, for its next session of spoken word — it’s not quite the Bastille, but we always have some ooh la la!

Writers, readers, poets — all word lovin’ folks with a hankering to share the love are invited along, with five-minute open mic spots on offer. Babushka has excellent sound and backing tracks and graphics can be accommodated. You won’t find a friendlier venue.

As always, performers are encouraged to take the theme and run with it for their 5-minute slots — or ignore it altogether!

Entry is free, though a gold coin donation would be appreciated for this non-profit, community event.
